Of course, Camilla should be there. I'am sure she will be there to show support for Wills and Harry, and to celebrate Diana's life. I think alot of people will find it as an insult if she didn't show. But then again some people will see it as an insult if she does show up.

Of course this does beg the question - when is enough enough? I mean, are we going to have one of these every ten years?

Let's be honest - we will end up paying for some part of the concert even if it's only security and the clean-up afterwards. It's a gamble alright.
But that is what the VAT is for (unless it gets waived), and additional money (hotels, food) from people coming to London for the concert, plus the actually tickets fees. I still can't see how they will lose money. I would also assume the 'books' on this would be made public.

Isn't it more important to care about the feelings of the living, who invited you, than the dead? It would be a slap in the face to William and Harry if Camilla said no to the memorial service IMO.

Possibly. I did however, use my ears. We've been told that she will definately be attending with the Prince of Wales. So I sort of think she'll be there.

It's just great that her sons are at the forefront of organising these events - the memorial service and the concert. I love the title 'Concert for Diana'. It sounds so right. A celebration of her wonderful life. Though it was short, it had so much meaning for many of us. Though it ended tragically, there is so much remembrance of all that was beautiful and lovely associated with it.

I congratulate TRH Prince William and Prince Harry for wanting to commemorate this 10th anniversary of their mother's passing with such meaningful events. I love the interview and they emphasized that they want the concert to be fun just as their mother would have wanted. They obviously love her and want her remembered as she deserves. I cannot see any sign of ill-will or rancour on their part. So let's just support them in this endeavour and leave all the unfair speculations aside.

Well, for someone who doesn't see what there is to debate, your doing a good job of it .lol.

Because there has already been a celebration, yeah

Hmmm, if I have my years right, 2007 shall mark the tenth year of her passing so who said anything about a concert every 10 years? Get through the first one first. Of course if it doesn't pain you (which I'm guessing it shall) too much, BeatrixFan.

I find it very odd how this is being done on the 10th anniversary of a death. Surely if you want to commemorate a life you'd wait for a milestone such as a 50th? This just strikes me as very strange. The Princes dont want people trading on their mother's name - so they set up a concert and open it up to big businesses.

Exactly but so many people I call "haters" will try to say something negative about this great occasion.

Well, maybe the "haters" are just getting a little tired of this endless saga. The inquest will be over this week. If this concert is a closing farewell then fine and enjoy it - but then that should be it IMO. It should just be finished after that. Then we can all look to the future.

BeatrixFan we are all looking forward towards the future. But it isn't wrong to remember those who aren't with us anymore.

I'm not getting involved in this debate...

I just watched the interview with William & Harry about the concert. It sounds like the princes are getting very involved with it, and they seem very genuinely excited about it. I think Diana would be very proud of them.

come on people, the concert is a party to celebrete the diana's life don't the diana dead, the boys love so much thier mother and for them this is the best way to honred their mother, are their mother's boys.
The important or the point don't is if camila will be there or not, taht os a personal choice, she want go she go, she don't want go don't go, it's very simple.

The memorial is a event more formal, for eduation camilla was invited for be the wife of charles.

this don't is only a concert for diana's life, a concert do with money etc etc etc, is a concert for charity with diana's name, very similar to the freddie mercury tribute in 1992.

This event leave clear another situation, wills and harry suport the diana princess of wales memorial fund, many times the press said the boys don't was in good relations with their uncle for the fundation.

I said it again, this is a party, may be in 10 or 30 years, diana will be remember with a memorial service for be a princess for 15 years, a public figure and the mother of a king, don't with a concert.
william and harry were very clear, the memorial in august 31, the party in july 1.

Inviting Camilla to the memorial service is a bit unexpected for most of us. If this is Prince William and Prince Harry's wish, we shall respect that. They are the most important legacies of Diana, Princess of Wales. Being friendly towards their stepmother is a good thing for Wales family and British royal family as a whole.I appreciate their generosity on this issue.
For who shall foot the bill? I have no clear idea. I understand some British citizens are unwilling for this because this cost their huge money.There will be a solution either from Prince Charles using his Duchy of Cornwall fund or other sources of fund to memorize Diana, Princess of Wales.

yes, you're right, i have to agree. if is william and harry's wish we have to respect.

charles used the duchy of cornwall for many things, and if he used one part for this is good for him, diana was his first wife and the mother of his children.
but here nobody said, william and harry have their own money, the legacy of their mother and the legacy of the queen mother.

they can used the diana money until the 25 years old and william will be in june

That was cool to see William and Harry's face, they are real HANDSOMES, wow!... I wish to hear their voices on the TV interviewing yesterday but I can't hear because I am deaf...
Awww, it is nice of them think of keeping their mother memorial and cencert alive, they must miss their mother so much. How sweet of them, they invite their step mother, Camille to be attended at. Their mother did a good job to teach them how doing matter and treating people as inviting their step mother. I respect their wishes because of the Royal. I wish their best on 2 events of their mother.
